The Unbearable Lightness of Being

The plot line is an interesting story following the 60’s Russian, Prague invasion and depicts ordinary middle-class characters.

The Unbearable Lightness of being is a philosophical masterpiece skilfully woven into a naturalistic plot line.

What I enjoyed about the book was the philosophical remarks it made to explain or discuss everyday occurrences, like contemplating the relationship between someone and their pet. Nietzsche’s idea of eternal recurrence is explored in the opening chapter of the book and the theme is further explored throughout the book through life events of the characters and interruptions of the author.I rate this book 7 out of 10 buns.
